Rev. Paul Raushenbush: “The Power of the Internet in Our Spiritual Lives”
Sunday November 18, 2012 at 10 am, 11:30 am, or 5:30 pm
The Internet has fundamentally changed the way we communicate and obtain information. Sacred and religious texts, theological debates, and virtual pilgrimages are all just a click away. The Internet can be a wonderful tool for religion. However, Rev. Paul Raushenbush, Senior Religion Editor of The Huffington Post calls it both a blessing and a curse. The Internet should come with a warning: “Handle with Care.” It is overflowing with information on religion and spirituality that can lift our spirits and help us to grow in knowledge and wisdom. However, the web can also deceive, harden hearts and enflame destructive animosities. Rev. Paul Raushenbush will share insights into how people of goodwill can best approach faith in the digital age culled from over a decade of working in on-line religion.
